Growing up, I’ve always enjoyed watching documentaries about America’s top deadliest gangs and movies based on famous criminals for doing illegal activity. Usually in these types of cases, majority of the time, a man is in charge when it comes to gangs or smuggling drugs into the United States, but however, that is not the case in this true crime story. Majority of people who will read this, probably never heard of a woman named Griselda Blanco, who is well known for trafficking cocaine into the US. Honestly, I’ve never heard of her and if I have then I don’t remember, but I ran across a post on Facebook last week about the actress, Jennifer Lopez, who is reportedly suppose to play Blanco in an upcoming movie based on the drug trafficker’s life. If there is a movie coming out about Blanco’s life story then I definitely want to see it, and if you are familiar with her, I’m sure you would like to see it too. But anyway, let’s get into the case.
"It's hard for me to believe that a human being could have done what I've done, but I know that I did it." - Jeffrey Dahmer.
Violation of traffic laws and receiving a traffic ticket has become a day to day phenomenon for a regular driver. We have become so habituated to the present traffic regulation that we hardly pay heed to what lies in the more in-depth segment. Traffic Violation is the most common offence, people commit against the state as described by traffic violation lawyers. It not only shows their lackadaisical approach towards the sanctity of the law but also their reckless behaviour towards their lot.
In the amount of time that it took to stab his girlfriend to death, Rondell Veal could have talked out his emotions. Instead of killing her, he could have employed reason and allowed those feelings to take a backseat. Sadly, none of this happened. Veal’s sentencing of 33 years in prison after serving two years already due to the 2017 homicide of Sherrie Campbell seems to be light. What could’ve prevented this first murder in three years in the city of Newark, Delaware? (A 2014 botched robbery saw the slaying of Marcus Johnson.) The application of logic and the understanding of safeguarding human life and actually thinking before one acts would have been the keys to a more conducive interaction.
Eulea Parot lived in Florence County, South Carolina when she gave birth to the youngest in a string of five illegitimate children. Donald Henry "Pee Wee" Gaskins entered the world March 31, 1933, to a mother that barely noticed his birth. At the tender age of just one year, while left unattended, Gaskins drank a bottle of kerosene. This caused severe seizures until he was three years old. His mother brought men in and out of her house, paying little attention to the treatment her children received by the men. Donald, because of his small stature and big attitude, was often the target of the beatings around the house. Gaskins attended school until he tired of the daily beatings by his peers and the castigation of his teachers at the age of 11, when he dropped out in favor of working a full day at a local auto repair garage.
Last December I was arrested for a DUI charge and spent the night in jail. In October of 2019 I plead guilty for “Wet Reckless” charges taking a deal from the district attorney. I'm on three years’ probation, I have to complete three months of DUI classes, another online class, and will end up paying over $7,000 in fines and fees. I lost my job three months after my arrest and background checks have haunted me since.
Mr. Torain flies right into the topic of whether Sammy “The Bull” Gravano is a model citizen or a SOB. He includes the other topic concerning the time it takes for a loving relationship to turn sour. Lenard McKelvey is “big mad” at the Hater. What this side topic reveals is that Star is aware of the media landscape and conveys a message that brings to light the foul-ups in the industry. Star says that he will rock solo if Ronnie never checks into the show. Mr. Torain wonders if his viewers and listeners care about The Bull opening up on some shady dealings from Cosa Nostra. Star says that he “gave it up sweet.” He takes a call to get input from an audience member.
Out of the gate, Mr. Torain turns into a “chatty patty.” In regard to Evelyn Lozada, he says that he has not watched the show Basketball Wives in years. He briefly mentions the serial killer Samuel Little as a clout chaser. The topic of discussion sways to the “darkism” that exists against light-skinned privilege with model Rashida Strober. Rashida holds that Cardi B is a “baby Evelyn Lozada.” She criticizes the fact that Cardi is free in the world because of her complexion. Star asks Rashida if she still remained an item with a light-skinned man. Mr. Torain jokes saying that Rashida nabbed an albino. Quickly, he asks if it is high time to cancel Evelyn. Star admits that he’s not up to speed on Wives.
Star begins the show with his two fears: “sharks and fire coochie.” He then brings to light the fact that Amber Guyger has been sentenced and convicted. He discusses Joshua Brown, the witness in Guyger’s murder trial who received fatal rounds. He contemplates criminal organizations who have taken out so-called snitches and conspiracists. Mr. Torain says that the cops in Mexico are corrupt. He speaks of the Yakuza in Japan and the Chinese Triads. Stevie Wonder, according to Mr. Torain, could have provided intelligence on how someone gunned down Brown. A caller says that people from the sheriff to the judge acted “unprofessionally.”
Mr. Torain is an informant. He tells. He’s a snitch. And this is meant in the best way. Star testifies that he got caught lacking and that a young lady may be on Instagram with a photo of her and Star in the bed. Mr. Torain then switches lanes and talks about the judge hugging Guyger and giving her a Bible. Next, Star breaks down how there’s a difference between bleach blonde and natural. White women who have naturally blonde hair want the “goddess look.” Bleach blondes are just reaching. Then, Star delineates the question of the show concerning blacks being on code or within a collective, advancing in society. He ponders whether as a group, blacks can better themselves in the context of the “greater good.”
The duel of topics motivates Troi “Star” Torain. He becomes animated and more focused as he launches into the show. He discusses how the judge in the Amber Guyger murder trial should be dubbed a different name. And in Bruce Lee fashion, Torain switches topics with ease like a swift kick to side of the head. He talks about how hip hop architects Rakim and MC Serch might go to blows over alleged writings that occurred decades ago. Then, he turns back to the Guyger case seamlessly. The Castle Doctrine which upholds a citizen’s rights to be immune to laws that would normally be offenses if they take place in said citizen’s vehicle or home came into the conversation. Star finds this to be damning in this case. Botham Jean was in the comfort of his home when he was shot to death by Guyger. With just a turn on the winding road of discourse, Star once again talks about Rakim and MC Serch. He states that the former is angry at the latter over the aforementioned writing fallout. He says that there’s “nothing worse than an old clout chaser.”
